Last night, Bill Clinton added to the "Hillary for President" rumor mill by telling David Letterman that he and the wife are focused on other things that the Republicans are probably going to screw up, like the "government shutdown, delaying health assistance, cutting food stamp assistance." But Letterman really wanted to know if the former Secretary of State would be throwing her hat in the ring, to which Bubba said, "You know that if I did know, I wouldn’t tell you. But I honestly don’t know. Chelsea doesn’t know, and Hillary doesn’t know,” he said. “And that’s a good thing for America. We should be focusing on these big challenges now, and talking about how to get this country back on track.”
President Clinton, whose Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting starts today, criticized how "we've created this climate where you're constantly running" for office, noting that when he ran for President in 1992, he "only" had a 13-month campaign.
He also said of Hillary's plans, "There’s a lot of stuff out there, and she’s just - she’s still finishing her book. She’s still setting up [a] project, ‘Too Small to Fail’ - a children’s effort through our foundation, and we’re having a lot of fun - going to movies and restaurants, and taking walks — being a normal person. I mean, you know, at our age, that counts for something - being able to have a little fun."
Of course, the New York magazine interview makes Hillary Clinton's candidacy a "foregone conclusion."
